I believe the quarters are a little small for four adults but large enough for two adults and two smaller children. It was ideal for two adults. The boat comes with a television, radio, and CD player. Reception varies by location, so you may want to bring along a book or some cards, games, etc.
Before starting out, a staff person at the marina demonstrates how to handle the boat and how everything works. They even have a video you are required to view before navigating on the canal. The boat has a diesel motor and comes with a full fuel tank that holds more than enough fuel for a week's cruising. We stopped once during the week to add more fresh water. The boats are kept in excellent condition, and everything worked perfectly for us.

While the scenery is nice there is not a lot to do on this vacation. The main tourist visits are a beer museum and a sink factory whick take over nine hours of cruising to get to and 52 locks to open and close. A lot of work for very little payoff! Stay at a hotel instead! Or if you must boat choose the Nottingham Castle Marina, which is within walking distance of city center.

Space was, of course, limited since the boat is only 6 1/2 feet wide, but you soon learn to make do with what you have.
On the down side, the boat was not in the cleanest condition when we went on board. I think the ladies had it cleaner when we returned.
